Buffon slams heartless Michael Oliver for the last minute debacle

Premier League fans take one positive from last night's European action

Premier League fans take one positive from last night's European action

Cristiano Ronaldo - who else - slammed the spot kick past reserve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to send Real into the last four with a 4-3 aggregate win.

Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero says Gianluigi Buffon might have gone a touch far in his emotional and colourful post-match rant about referee Michael Oliver in Madrid.

It was a tenth of a penalty.

The goal sent Real into the semi-finals for a record-extending eighth year in a row.

But down the other end Navas spilled a cross from Douglas Costa right at the feet of Matuidi who rolled the ball in to level the tie. He will realise the mistake he did.

Replays were inconclusive on the extent of Benatia's contact on Vazquez, with the defender protesting his innocence.

"He felt he had an injustice, he reacted".

After the game, Buffon claimed that the referee had a trash can for a heart, but Vazquez showed little sympathy for Real's opponents.

"It's been introduced in England in the FA Cup, we have it in Italy, Germany and Portugal".

The strike has already brought debate over whether it was the greatest goal this historic competition has ever seen and will take some beating after a thrilling round of matches over the past two weeks.

"Life goes on. I'm happy and proud of how we played, we made the impossible possible".

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli accused UEFA of referee bias and called for video review after a late penalty knocked his team out of the Champions League quarterfinals.

The 40-year-old was sent off controversially after confronting referee Michael Oliver when the English referee gave a penalty to Los Blancos in the dying moments of the game.

Ron said: "I don't understand why they protested the penalty. I also told him that in the first leg at minutes 92 there was a penalty on [Juan] Cuadrado", Allegri said. "I know the referee saw, it was certainly a dubious incident".

Regarding the events at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo added: "We have suffered, but it helps us to learn".

"I'm disgusted more and more with this football world, because when you make an effort like that, a referee can not give a penalty like that in the 93rd minute and destroy people's hopes".
